Hi, is there a disparity between Client API's pull and dev-local's pull?

(d/pull db '[*] nil)   ; eid arg is nil, what happens next?
  • Dev-local returns nil
  • Client API in Cloud throws an exception about eid being nil.

Is there a good reason why that is so?
Or should dev-local be fixed to increase parity?

Thanks!

Hi @Djomphe-elyada.

Thank you for this report! The behavior between dev-local/client-cloud/peer-client is undefined behavior and we could do a better job of truing that behavior up. I have made a ticket to that effect, but the problem here is that d/pull requires an eid. Our api docs show the expected args for d/pull and you should rely upon that documented behavior.

Thanks,
Jaret
